for moscone, the board approved [speaker not understood] payment through april 2018. >> technical difficulties; please stand by >> and the 8.2 million is, as it were by background, an annual appropriation by the general fund, making the convention visitors bureau rather than applying it to its operating budget. the proposal is to reallocate toward the repayment of cop. these are not new dollars. these are dollars that have already been committed historically to the convention [speaker not understood]. the next slide is the sequence of how the flow of funds would work. as you know, by requiring 6% proposing 6% interest, it is way higher than your typical -- the current market. in addition, we assumed in looking at the med assessment, if you look at assessment 3, that there are no -- it is just a cpr of 3%. it doesn't assume any additional growth in hotel tax revenues and so on. by using those conservative assumptions we have discussed and in agreements with sf travel we would establish a stabilization fund of approximately 2 million. and the idea was by looking at the last 10 years we realized
and mayor george moscone who were brutally assassinated decades ago. and we gather every year to remember, and not just to remember and to mourn, but also to remember the positives and to remember frankly both of these great men and what they contributed to our community. you know, with respect to harvey milk, there will never, ever be another harvey milk in our community in terms of what he represented for our community in terms of a step forward. we are now elected lgbt peep to office and harvey was such an incredible trail blazer, not? in just getting elected, but in being a great leader and always holding his head high for our community. and i know when i was first sworn into office, one of the things that i always kept in mind was something that i understand harvey to have said, * that when you go into city hall, you walk up the central staircase. you don't walk on one of the side staircases because for our community, it is so important for us to walk up that central staircase and for us to be in the middle of everything and for everyone to know that we are here. and all these years
for coming and honoring mayor moscone and supervisor harvey milk today. it is absolutely mind boggling to me that it's been 34 years. i think 34 years ago tonight, i was standing out here, we all had candles. we did the candle light march and we were in total shock, denial, grief beyond belief. i think we really felt at that point so hopeless because we had lost two people who were so important to us in our community. today, as we leave here and we march up to castro street, we're going in the opposite direction because i think there is so much hope left. we're going up the street, and that's harvey's whole message, his whole legacy was about hope. so, again, i thank you all so much for coming today. we have wonderful speakers. our electeds are here, and i thank you all for coming. you'll be hearing from most of them. and i look in the crowd and i just see family and friends, people who were with us that night 34 years ago. so, i can't, i can't mention every single person, but i thank each and every one of you for being here. >>> i am now very happy to introduce our mayor, mayor ed lee, who

with the hotel community to invest in the expansion of moscone center. moscone center generates currently hosts 1 million visitors each year and generates more than 1.6 billion in visitor spending. this in turn contributes to millions of dollars to the city general fund and supports thousands of jobs. the proposed expansion will generate even more benefits. tourism dollars generated from moscone center activities ripple into every neighborhood in the city. through rate compression which pushes businesses into neighborhoods where business in the neighborhood when hotels around the convention center are actually full, it pushes business out to other hotels outside the downtown corridor. it also helps with paychecks, local purchases and taxes paid by our visitors that are staying there. for these reasons, the hotel community is proud to partner with the city and we thank you to help grow our economy through the joint investment opportunity, we will be entering into with the approval of the proposals that are before you here today. * so, we thank you and we thank supervisor kim also for her partnersh
